The MH370 search has been reignited ever since locals on Reunion, a remote island in the Indian Ocean, found debris from a downed Boeing 777 airplane earlier this week. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, and now French officials may be able to determine more about what happened during the jet's disappearance.
The piece of wreckage, which appears to be a wing flap torn from an airplane, is about 8 feet long and 3 feet wide. American officials determined that the debris came from Reunion, which is off the coast of Madagascar, and even though the Australian government has called it a "very significant development," many are hesitant about the developments.
"We have had many false alarms before, but for the sake of the families who have lost loved ones, and suffered such heartbreaking uncertainty, I pray that we will find out the truth, so that they may have closure and peace," Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said in a statement. "I promise the families of those lost that whatever happens, we will not give up." more >>
